The Idealists

INFP: So Unique

Idealistic, creative and principled. Easy-going and adaptable 99% of the time but cross an INFP’s strongly-held value and prepare for a Jekyll-and-Hyde-like transformation from adorable fluffy bunny to raging lion. Compromising their values is just not an option for INFPs. They are kind, open-minded and empathetic. However, they can be oversensitive, impractical and are prone to leaving projects unfinished.

  • ENTJ: So Ambitious
  • ENFJ: So Giving

ENFP: So Curious

Spontaneous, enthusiastic and creative. ENFPs are full of ideas. Quitting their job to become a yoga teacher in Bali or to save baby polar bears in the Arctic is just another day in the life of an ENFP. They often have a stockpile of quirky stories from these adventures, exacerbated by their lack of practical skills that get them into all kinds of unusual situations. They’re resourceful, curious and know how to have fun. However, they can be unpredictable, impractical and flighty.

Go with the flow and sit in the sandy dunes watching the sun set with a bottle of rosé.

  • INTJ: So Strategic
  • INFJ: So Thoughtful

INFJ: So Thoughtful

Reflective, devoted and perceptive. INFJs have a seemingly magical ability to read people and can often sense someone’s mood the minute they walk through the door. They’ll be able to tell if you’re going to be lifelong partners or distant acquaintances within seconds of meeting you. They’re thoughtful, passionate and mysterious. However, they can be oversensitive, perfectionists and stubborn.

  • ENTP: So Visionary
  • ENFP: So Curious

ENFJ: So Giving

Giving, charismatic and supportive. There’s nothing more important to an ENFJ than helping a friend in need and, fortunately, giving advice comes instinctively to them. They're naturally popular and have hectic social calendars. ENFJs are encouraging, sociable and affectionate. However, they can be manipulative, smothering and too selfless.

  • INTP: So Logical

The Rationals

INTP: So Logical

Analytical, conceptual and inventive. INTPs are exceptional at analysing problems. They’ll happily spend days, if not weeks, picking apart ideas such as why the optimum angle to pour beer is 42.7°. It may be utterly useless but they’ll do it purely to satisfy their own burning curiosity. They're honest, logical and innovative. However, INTPs can be insensitive, absent-minded and aloof.

Cosy up next to a roaring fire and get competitive with some board games.

  • ENFJ: So Giving
  • ENTJ: So Ambitious

ENTP: So Visionary

Original, inquisitive and visionary. ENTPs are sponges for information and love to debate. They don’t do this to achieve a greater purpose, but for the love of the intellectual stimulation. ENTPs are treasure chests of knowledge as a result of having completely immersed themselves in numerous obscure topics over their lifetime. They're quick-witted, resourceful and innovative. However, they can be argumentative, tactless and impractical.

INTJ: So Strategic

Purposeful, innovative and structured. INTJs treat life like a chess game and there's rationale behind nearly everything they do. The reason why they moved the toothbrush holder 30 cm to the left is not because they felt like it. It’s because it will save 1.7 seconds each day which is, incidentally, 10.3 minutes per year and 13.6 hours over an average lifespan. INTJs are organised, independent and future-orientated. However, they may be judgmental, arrogant and impatient.

When an ENTJ decides they want something, they go full speed ahead and watch out anyone who gets in their way. They're assertive, confident and goal-orientated. However, they can be stubborn, impatient and ruthless.

The Guardians

ISFJ: So Nurturing
